The writings of Ohio native Ambrose Bierce combine the graphic descriptions of the Civil War that only a veteran can provide plus the narrative skills of one of America's greatest writers. Known as Bitter Bierce, his stories are often sharp satires of human folly, intense journeys into the Civil War, or horror stories sure to keep Stephan King up at night. The Civil War Museum is proud to announce a Zoom workshop on this often little known, but highly influential author. During this meeting, we will look at the man, his feelings about humanity, then some of his best short stories, in both the Civil War and horror genres.
